Felt jewelry and hand dyed wool fiber

Here comes my new set of hand felted necklaces and hand dyed extra soft merino wool rovings, all in very rich and vibrant colors – color food for the soul! The felt necklaces come in sizes from S to XL and can be found at StoneCircleWools on Etsy, and the hand dyed roving at AllThePrettyFibers also on Etsy. :o)

And three new handspun merino yarns have come off the bobbins, “Dragonfly II” , “Embers II” and “Slate III”. The yarns are very soft and have more yardage than my regular lots, though they are still within the double knit and light worsted weight range, so they can be knitted with needle size 4-4.5mm (US 6-7). They are now displayed in my Etsy store AllThePrettyFibers

Everyone enjoy the Easter holidays and Happy Crafting!

The crocheted felting experiment

So I´ve tried a crocheted felting project. I never tried one before. I have been doing loads of wet and nuno felting, and many needle felting projects too. But crocheted felting? Okay, to keep this story short, I handspun a heavy worsted (aran) single yarn (2×3.5oz/110yds) from my 24 micron merino rovings, that can be found in my etsy store – I used several colours from my 9oz 20 colour mix, I picked the colours quite randomly really. I crocheted a pair of XXXL slippers, using an 8mm hook, and washed the slippers at 60 degrees Celsius for one cycle in my washing machine (the washing cycle took around 1 1/1 hours). And, ta taa……


I am wearing these lovely babies almost every day, they are wonderfully dense, strong and yet soft, I am quite surprised. I love them. :o)

I have increased my stock of handspun thick and thin merino yarns and added 3 new colours, vibrant orange, pansy purple, and opal blue, they can be found in my ebay listing on ebayUK:

And 2 new handspun yarns have made it into my etsy store, with great colour combinations, one perfect for knitted felting, and the second one an extra soft merino yarn, here they are:

 

Everyone, have a wonderful and creative summer season! Keep safe. :o)
